Winter Wildlife Excursions
Winter naturalists will lead a number of driving tours on the Refuge Road during the 2016 / 2017 winter season, focusing on a variety of topics and giving participants a behind-the-scenes look at the National Elk Refuge and its wild inhabitants. In addition to traveling along the Refuge Road, the tours will include stops at the historic Miller Ranch and in a management area generally closed to the public behind Miller Butte. The wildlife excursions will be offered each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from December 17 through March 30. Reservations are required for the two-hour tours that run from 1:30–3:30 pm by calling (307) 201-5406. Participants should dress in layers and plan to make frequent stops to exit the vehicle and enjoy views of the landscape and wildlife. Binoculars, a spotting scope, and guide books will be available for use.
